co-counselling

(redirected from peer counselling)

co-counselling

Popular psychology
A self-help format for mental health management, based on a philosophy that originated in the 1960s in Seattle. In a typical co-counselling session, each person has an allotted time to act as a counsellee, while the peer counsellor helps him or her recognise hidden or blocked emotions; once one person’s allotted time ends, the roles are switched. Co-counselling ideally occurs after one or more members in the counselling network have undergone a training period (e.g., 40 hours). Peer counselling can only work long term if the sessions are mutually beneficial.
